UPDATE: It looks like this is not a Verizon promotion. It is actually BlackBerry’s campaign and Verizon is just one of the partners.
Verizon let us know that they have a new contest/promotion going with the launch of the Bold 9650. They are traveling the country with events in 5 major cities letting you submit a video and tell them how you “live your life bold.” Votes will then be taken on every submission and the winner can choose from one of three amazing bold adventure prizes.
Verizon is currently traveling the US and just finished up in Boston last weekend. The schedule for the rest of July is:
- July 3rd and 4th – Boston – Boston Harborfest
- July 10th and 11th – New York – South Street Seaport
- July 16th and 17th – Chicago – Wrigley Field
- July 24th and 25th – Atlanta – Centennial Olympic Park
- July 29th and 30th – San Francisco – Union Square
The winner gets to choose from one of the following prizes:
- Costa Rica Rainforest – You and a friend will spend 8 days and 7 nights in San Jose Costa Rica. Enjoy everything this beautiful tropical nation has to offer while hiking, kayaking, white water rafting and much, much, more.
- Classic Kenya Safari – You and a friend will enjoy 8 days and 7 nights on an African Safari. Explore the dramatic landscapes, encounter wildlife (big and small) and visit the Maasai who live alongside nature in a unique co existence of humans and wildlife.
- Great Barrier Reef – You and a friend will spend 7 days and 6 nights diving and exploring one of the seven wonders of the world. The Great Barrier Reef is the only living thing that can be seen from space and is know as one of the most spectacular underwater experiences imaginable.
Users can submit their videos online at www.liveboldbebold.com or at one of the events. You can also join the Live Bold. Be Bold. Facebook fan page for a chance to win the new BlackBerry Bold (the fan page will be giving away one smartphone per week).
